The ANU is touting a new deal inked with the Manhattan School of Music to teleconference their music lessons:

The agreement – signed in New York City by ANU Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Ian Chubb and President Robert Sirota of the Manhattan School of Music (MSM) – sees the formation of a unique partnership between two world-leading musical institutions, using dedicated state-of-the-art music videoconferencing facilities and high-speed internet networks.

The two institutions will work together on a range of initiatives, utilising leading edge videoconference technology for one-on-one lessons, master classes, virtual staff and student exchanges, and collaborative research into best practice in music performance and education over long distances. Additionally, the agreement will see the institutions explore the opportunities for international benchmarking in examination panels and for virtual auditions for US institutions via ANU.

Not sure how you managed to turn videoconferencing into ‘teleconference’. Not really the same thing.

Good on the School of Music for this.

What? First the Smithsonian, and now the Manhattan School of Music? It sounds like American schools are lining up to ally themselves with the ANU! (My Alma Mater, BTW.)

Congratulations ANU and School of Music!!! It says a lot about the respect that our own Uni has got around the world.
